Hmmm.  I went through a similiar upgrade in December.  310-2044 to a 620-
2180.  Unfortunately (for you) no problems.  We are skating along.

Your memory size is one thing of curiosity to me.  What size did you have
before?  Hopefully 256 MB or less.

Have you been running performance tools during this time?  How do
your memory pool sizes look?  How about DSPSYSSTS?  What are

When you talk about job initiation being slow I am awful suspicious
of memory pools and activity levels.
